Could you review the fix ?

Bug:    https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8221741
Change: https://cr.openjdk.java.net/~itakiguchi/8221741/webrev.00/

I'd like to obtain a sponsor for this issue.

On AIX platform, fontconfig.properties file is used to pick up proper 
TrueType font settings are written by XLFD format on 
fontconfig.properties file.

On current implementation, Java tries to load X11 bitmap fonts even if 
these are not used.
This font load work is almost name as "xlsfonts -ll".
It spends many CPU time and memories.

Just font name format should be supported.

To SAP representative,
I have a question about copyright year on 
Please let me know how I should write down copyright year.
